>>> big casino. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, shooting the moon. president obama met today with congressional leaders to deal with the debt and he may have calmed the republican' bluff. the president is pushing a plan much bigger than before with $4 trillion. that's trillion with a t, spending cuts. major changes to medicare and to social security could be on the table as well. provided republicans agree to an increase in tax revenues. we may be watching president obama outmaneuvering his republican opponents, positioning himself as an even bigger deficit hawk than those on the right. it's a bold move, but will it work? >>> and what happens if no deal on the debt creeling is reached? is president obama's last best option to invoke the 14th amendment, to bypass congress and borrow beyond the debt limit? conservatives are usually quick to defend the constitution, but congressman tim scott of south carolina says that move might be worthy of, believe it or not, impeachment. >>> how's this for a fight? fox is going after

, to have a big fight in washington about what we are going to prioritize in this country, what we are going to spend money on and not going to spend money on. the president said yesterday the fight about the debt ceiling is not going to be some short-term stop-gap measure to tie the fight over to another day. the president said he wants to have the fight now. we are coming out of the great recession, but still tough times economically. given that, how should we be allocating our resources as a country? the republican stance in this big argument, the republican position is that they will not allow taxes to go up one penny, even if democrats only want to raise taxes on the richest people in the country. >> a tax hike cannot pass the u.s. house of representatives. it's not just a bad idea, it doesn't have the votes, and it can't happen. the american people don't want us to raise taxes. >> american people do not want us to raise taxes, makes for a nice, tidy, talking point in this fight. it does not, however, appear to be a true talking point. most recent poll to poll on this question said when

and angry ever since they heard the verdict. >> lilia, thank you. we want to get to the big questions of what is next for casey anthony. we want to bring in our legal team. i'm joined by veteran criminal trial lawyer, ricky, and wendy murphy, former prosecutor. i know we have a lot to talk about. wendy, what is your reaction, the initial reaction to what the judge was able to do? because according to everyone that i have talked to, he threw the book at her, at least the book that he was given to the jury. >> it was a paper back but a book nonetheless. he gave her the max. no question. why he chose to do that, my sense is, although judges may never admit this, when there is a mob outside and they are angry and they believe something happened to this child, even though she's acquitted, when the public feels like the justice system failed, the judge will do what needs to be done to keep things calm. let's say judge perry is right, that she will have at most one more month behind the bars, or at least a few weeks, it allows this noise to calm down. >> do you agree with ricky, that it allo

a big deal. so what is a big deal? white house officials tell me anything over $2 trillion, but he is pushing for more in the area of cuts that would equal $4 trillion over the next 10 to 12 years. now, this all comes against the backdrop of a report today in the "washington post" saying thatm president obama is putting social security on the table along with medicare and medicaid and when we asked the white house about this, they said, look, this is not news. the president has always supported the idea of small cuts in those entitlement programs to make them more effective as long as the cuts didn't impact beneficiaries and having said that some folks on the hill say there are some scenarios which would see a major overhaul of the entitlement programs, but the white house says they would not want to see anything to overhaul the main programs. but one of the sticking points here, thomas, is taxes. democrats want to see a rollback in tax credits for the wealthy americans and in big corporations, and the republicans have said no way, we don't support anything that looks like a tax in

. they are convincing one another that it is not that big after deal. so right now the white house's big hope and i don't think it is misplace said that if we go to do doom's days on this, the hope is people that get blamed will be the republicans. >> that's option 2. that's default. i've given you two options. >> it's not default if we don't stop sending out the checks. if we keep sending out the checks, it's not default. we didn't default in '95. we just got near to it. >> does the president then say, okay, i'll agree to the republican plan? what's the third option besides default and defeat? how does he force his point of view, which is a reasonable balance, two or three to one, spending cuts to revenue hikes. >> i have no idea. i should say they're talking four or five to one. >> how do we get to there then? >> he can't. on his own we simply cannot. we live in a country, the constitution, the constitution has ultimate power. a lot of people think he could ignore them by asserting constitutional authority, but that is really dependent on the supreme court. >> am i right that it depends on one man, j

should we expect the prosecutor to respond. >> the issue is whether this is one big lie or four little lies. so what the defense is saying is it's kind of like, if you get -- if the case is you lied to a police officer about speeding, you said, oh, well i had to get to the hospital because my mother is dying of cancer. well, when did the doctor tell you this. he just told me that 15 minutes ago. he told me to get here as soon as i can. is that three different lies? the government is going to say, yes. each of those lies required a different action. they took up more government time. they caused more delay from getting to the real investigation of this case. >> how did you -- how would you interpret the judge's questioning pushing back? >> my interpretation of that is -- at least based on the defense argument, he's not quoting the right standard. and the standard is not government reaction. otherwise, if, for example, let's say miss anthony lied and the government -- and the police didn't do anything -- >> let's hold down here a minute. >> are you saying that miss anthony did not have t

to comment until you see some specifics. i think that the bottom line is in terms of an overall deal, the big holdup here is the fact that republicans have kept revenues off the table completely, even eric cantor yesterday, people said well, it's a great thing he says maybe he'll do a few of these egregious loopholes in the law, corporate jets and yachts and stuff like this, but even there, he had another loophole put in the law and none of the money that would be -- that comes from closing these loopholes would be used to reduce the deficit. so it's one step forward, two steps back. if republicans are willing to entertain serious revenues, there's a real chance for a big deal. if they're not, there's no chance for a big deal and i can tell you this. democrats are not going to go for something that says we have all these cuts that we'll put in the budget now and maybe we'll get revenues down the road, the ways and means committee or the finance committee will decide those down the road. leader reid issued a statement that i think sums up our view, that there has to be balance between cuts and

on cutting a big deal to take us through five to ten years, not just five or ten weeks. the problem, it seems to me, yesterday was a good example of it. you have questions tweeted to the president of the united states, questions delivered from the real world about housing problems, about i'm losing my house, my mortgage, what are we going to do. not policy questions from washington media members. the problem is that the president is dealing with a number of people who don't live in the real world. for example, eric cantor. no matter how many times he's been on and how many times we talk about rescinding the bush tax cuts, he calls it a tax increase. go to the grocery store and milk is on sale for $3.25. the next week it goes up to $3.75. it's not a hike in price, it's reverting back to the original price. they don't live in the real world. they just don't. >> he'll be on this morning so you can ask him again. >> we will ask him again. >> i would like to ask him what it is they offered yesterday that was different. the president talked about boehner's question being skewed. i put the question
